Midway Animal Hospital offers mobile pet exams in your house, so you don’t have to worry about transporting your pet to our veterinarian in Largo FL. Many pets become stressed during trips to the office, but our house call vet services can ease their minds and your burdens.
What to Expect During Mobile Pet Exams in Largo
Depending on the age, breed, and health of your pet, our vet in Largo may recommend wellness exams once or twice per year. When our mobile veterinarian in Largo arrives, you’ll be asked to complete a health history form and a checklist of issues that you are concerned about.
After a consultation and addressing your questions, our house call vet will begin the exam by taking your pet’s weight and vital signs and looking closely at their eyes, ears, nose and coat condition. We will also listen to your animal’s heart and lungs and then feel them pet all over to detect any abnormalities such as lumps and bumps. The exam continues with a closer investigation of your pet’s health.
Diagnostic Samples and Blood Work
Our mobile veterinarian in Largo FL may take a blood sample to perform a blood cell count and/or a chemistry panel to determine if your pet has any infections, organ diseases or anemia. If your animal is over or underweight, we may recommend a thyroid panel, as well. Fecal samples may be used to check for internal parasites such as heartworms, hookworms, and other disease sourcing parasitic species. Of course, we will also identify the presence of external parasites such as fleas and ticks during the exam and can help you find appropriate preventives for most internal and external pests.
Your vet in Largo may take a urine sample to determine your pet’s kidneys function properly. We can also detect conditions such as the presence of blood, sediments, urinary tract infections and diabetes through urinalysis testing. Our veterinary house calls are designed for convenience, so our mobile vet has an onboard diagnostics lab, so you get quick results. On occasion, we may send samples to a reference lab for a more intensive study if we detect a serious issue during pet exams in Largo.
